Yoga from the Inner Body is an internal and meditative approach that can help you access your core energy, release internal holding patterns, and help you feel awake, alive, energized and vital. Daily classes focus on long, slow, deep openings and release invited by conscious breath, imagery and organic movement; Restorative Yoga for deep relaxation; and traditional Yoga postures for strength, flexibility, balance and enhanced flow of energy.
